So the last day of my trip in New York was spent at the Lincoln center watching:
That's nice Kristen- but maybe too esoteric for you to talk about on your food blog- what else did you do that day?
Nothing. This took the whole day. WHOLE day. Close to nine hours of performing. And I don't really know how I can fully explain this experience. I'm afraid my blog would turn into more of a PhD thesis. Let's just say it was genius and had some of the best production values I've ever seen in a play. And at times I was drawn in and immersed in the world of the play, and at times I was nodding off and bored. Though if you get a chance to see this trilogy- I don't think you will regret it. It's probably one of the top three drama events of the year.
Since we were at the Lincoln center all day, we had to pick some restaurants where we could get a quick bite to eat. I had always wanted to go to Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery- and that was only a few blocks away. So Mom and I wandered over and we had bowls chicken soup that would have cured any cold. This hot chicken broth contained these dumplings that really made the soup a meal. And their version of an Oreo cookie was definitely not to be missed. Ok, so I don't have pictures of these things, and that's because I was down right embarrassed to take out my camera. See, there were only a few measly tables near this take-out counter, and I think everybody on break from the Lincoln center walked over, so it was insanely crowded. We had to become these awful vultures to even get a seat- and then while we were eating, we had all these pairs of eyes on us shouting "can't you eat faster?- Why are you enjoying that bite so much? -Don't talk and eat!" So I decided that taking out a camera was a little excessive for the moment.
Our dinner was at Telepan. By this point, my liver had officially turned into pate and I had decided to give up food. Forever. Roll me home. I think mom and I each had the salmon and spinach. I'm sure it was delicious. At this point any ambition I even had to become a restaurant critic ran away. I no longer thought this profession was an enviable job-it would be a small piece of hell.
